Attractive and expressive aromas of bright red cherry and raspberry combine with spicy notes of clove and graham cracker. Nuances of graphite and sea salt bring another dimension that blends with a brilliant acidity, leading to a long and lively finish.
More than 25 years ago, Flowers Vineyards and Winery pioneered Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the rugged coastal mountains of the extreme Sonoma coast. Joan and Walt Flowers had one simple goal – to make an exceptional wine that captured the wild beauty of the land and the spirit of the Sonoma Coast. This idea continues to drive everything we do – responsible agriculture, manual harvesting, use of 100% local fermentation and wine production with minimal intervention. Our unwavering commitment to creating unique wines that capture the spirit of the Sonoma Coast is the foundation of our success, and will continue to drive us in the years to come.
Situated at the top of the adjacent Pacific Ocean coastal ridges, our vineyards, Camp Meeting Ridge and Sea View Ridge, rise to impressive heights of 1,150 to 1,875 feet. The flowers are native to the Fort Ross-Seaview Area of American Viticulture (AVA), which was established in 2012 and is located at the western end of the Sonoma Coastal Denomination. Defined by elevation, rugged terrain, and proximity to the Pacific Ocean, the vineyard area is limited to 920-1,800+ feet above sea level and represents only 2% of the total AVA.
Pinot Noir has a well-deserved reputation as a fine and difficult to grow grape. Its culture is very abundant in colder climates such as Burgundy and the Willamette Valley in Oregon, but it is also widely grown throughout California, bathed in the sun.
Pinot Noir reflects its terroir, or place of origin, more than any other variety. This is certainly part of its wide appeal, and there is a revolution underway in California right now.
In Pursuit of Equilibrium, or IPOB, is a thriving group of producers based on the idea that California Pinot Noir should be balanced, not decadent and opulent – the prevailing style of the last few decades. Has the focus changed? There are compelling arguments on both sides of the argument.
Discover Pinot Noir Wines
Pinot Noir, often known as the "noble grape" or "red burgundy," is a blue-tinged grape variety that belongs to the vitis vinifera grape vine species. This finicky vine comes from Burgundy, France, and produces a popular red wine.
While Burgundy continues to produce some of the world's best Pinot Noir wines, high-quality Pinot Noir is now cultivated and produced in a variety of milder regions throughout the globe. In reality, a recent global tasting revealed that some wine areas in New Zealand produce some of the world's finest value Pinot Noirs.
Pinot Noir is the go-to wine for many people. It's light enough to enjoy all summer long, and it goes well with virtually any fish. Pinot Noir has a wide range of flavors, so it pairs nicely with a variety of meats and cheeses. While demand for this light red wine has risen significantly, the grape is notoriously temperamental and difficult to cultivate. As a result, wine prices have risen in recent years. The drinking of Pinot Noir wines may be traced back to the first century, when the ancient Romans reported doing so shortly after conquering most of the Gaul area, which is now France. There is no clear proof as to when the grape was originally fermented and consumed, although it has been around for quite some time.
About the Producer: Flowers Vineyard & Winery
Flowers Vineyard & Winery is a Californian wine producer located in the Sonoma Coast (AVA) (Wine Zone of America). It specializes in the production of high quality wines from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varieties. The flagship wine in Flowers' portfolio is Moon Select, named after the process of selecting the best lots of Chardonnay fruit from the estate's vineyards. It is fermented in French oak barrels with wild yeasts from the cellar and vineyards before aging in barrels for 14 months. Many other Chardonnay wines accompany the two Pinot Noir wines in the portfolio. The maritime influence is strong throughout the area: the vineyards of the farm, as well as the fruits of external origin, are found in the vicinity of the Pacific coast. The property was founded in 1989, when Pennsylvania nursery owners Walt and Joan Flowers acquired 321 acres (130 hectares) of land on Sonoma's north coast. Flowers has two vineyards that were gradually planted between 1991 and 2004 and now house a total of 69 acres (28 hectares) of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a small piece of Pinot Meunier.
